TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
Whereas Doug Ford’s new education scheme seeks to dramatically increase class sizes starting in Grade 4;
Whereas the changes will mean thousands fewer teachers and education workers and less help for every student;
Whereas secondary students will now be forced to take at least four of their classes online with as many as 35 students in each course;
Whereas Ford’s changes will rip over 1 Billion dollars out of Ontario’s education system by the end of the government’s term;
And Whereas kids in Ontario deserve more opportunities, not fewer;
Therefore, we the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:
Demand that the government halt the cuts to classrooms and invest to strengthen public education in Ontario.
